of president obama's second term, but joe biden is already commenting on possibly running for the top job himself in 2016. we'll show you what he said in a minute. first the new developments in the debate over guns in america. the national rifle association last night delivered a sharp response to president obama's inaugural address. speaking in reno, nevada, way waywayn wayne lapierre lashed out at one word from president obama. >> we cannot mistake absolutism, or treat name calling as reasoned debate. >> obama wants to turn the idea of absolutism into a dirty word, just another word for extremism. he wants you, all of you, and americans throughout all of this country, to accept the idea of principles as he sees fit. it's a way of redefining words so that commonsense is turned upside down and that nobody knows the difference. >> lapierre vowed not to give ground on gun control including efforts to increase background checks. a new poll found 92% of americans favor background checks for all gun buyers. >> he wants to put every private, personal firearms transaction under the thumb of the
of the debate. we're also watching the second couple, vice president joe biden and his wife jill biden, get in their limousine so they can head up in the motorcade to the capitol. you saw president obama and the first lady getting into the beast, the armored presidential limousine. they will ride separately up to the capitol from their daughters sasha and malia, who appear to be riding in this motorcade along with their grandmother, marion robinson, who is the mother, of course, of michelle obama, wolf. >> brianna, stand by for a moment. i want to keep these pictures up if we can, also pictures from the capitol. we are here on the united states capitol. we're awaiting the arrival of the president. should be coming up soon. kate balduan is here, david gergen is here. the day is enormous. whether you're a democrat or republican, you feel it from where we are. >> you sure do. it's a gorgeous day. it's brisk, but it's not freezing. the sun is gleaming on the capitol. you have these throngs of people. you can look all the way down the mall and see them. it's not as big as last time, but when you
president joe biden. it was yesterday, a sunday, a day we traditionally do not hold inauguration ceremonies. all the pomp and celebration were saved for today. our friend lawrence o'donnell is at the west front triangle outside the capitol. lawrence, what's the feeling there this morning? what is it like out there? >> reporter: the good news the feeling is warmer than anyone thought it was going to be. everybody was really worried around here in the last couple days just how cold it would be. it's livable in the 40s. and, rachel, they opened up the security system here at 7:00 a.m. people have been streaming in here since 7:00 a.m. they are not all through security yet. they will still be at least another hour of that. 250,000 of the president's closest friends have gotten tickets to this. not all of them get seats. some of them, some of the tickets are just standing tickets, and what you see behind me going down the mall are the people who are just here because they want to be here and they don't need a ticket. and they are in the free space, which may in many ways be the most fun place to
president, joe biden. he was dashing across the street zig-zag, hugging children on the side lines and seemed to be having a good time. what do you read into all of that? >> i think the camera followed joe biden all day. he would seem to be having the time of his life. he is. he's just somebody who brings great joy to his position. i mean he doesn't talk about the burdens of office or the agony of loneliness of decision-making or anything of the sort. he really does enjoy the people and enjoys the people he talks to. he enjoys the people in politics. there's nothing condescending, patronizing about him. and i just think today he was having the time of his life. he has a wonderful family that obviously cares deeply about him. >> ifill: aside from the president who turned around and took that last long look and said this is the last time i'll be able to do this, you don't get a sense from joe biden that he thinks this is his last rodeo >> i think he's thinking about having a future >> ifill: he's 70 years old very healthy. he would be up there hugging 800,000 if he could. i've never
president joe biden. we're all part of this. they were shouting we're in this together and we're going to act together and we're going to try to open dialogue with those who would be our enemies abroad. we're not looking for another war this time and under this president we're looking for a way to avoid one. because these wars as we've all learned the hard way are a lot easier to start than to finish. let's start with this astounding presidential embrace of the ongoing american revolution from lexington and concord to seneca falls, selma, and stonewall. sam stein covers politics for "the huffington post," and stephanie schriock is president of emily's list. let's start with the message of inclusion and community in the president's address yesterday. many have noticed his preference for three iconic places with historic significance in the fight for american rights. let me run through them. first, seneca falls, new york, where in 1848 elizabeth cady stanton and others led a historic convention dedicated to women's rights which later led to a women's right to vote, of course. selma, alab
weapon. lou: president obama hoping that his number two does better tomorrow when joe biden launches a campaign style road trip to promote gun control. his first stop is virginia, whose electorate is pro-gun. this is now coming to be known as the obama great gun grab. fox news national security analyst k.t. mcfarland, former state department director, will be here to discuss john kerry's appointment to the secretary of state and what he means to obama foreign policy. we will be talking to a man who put the fate of the keystone pipeline and the fate of the president's hands. we have dave heineman with his approval to give president obama a second chance. we begin with the obama party is campaign to ban assault weapons. they not only want to ban assault weapons but certain handouts. for more on what the democrats are trying to do to our second amendment rights, we bring in shannon bream. reporter: senator dianne feinstein acknowledges that it will be an uphill battle. this new measure would ban the sale and manufacture and transfer and importation of 157 specific garments, along with a
gun control is now a white house campaign-style effort and vice president joe biden held a social media town hall, a google hangout to rally support. >> make your voices heard. this outfit, this town listens when people rise up and speak. >> reporter: the white house and feinstein know their biggest hurdle is convincing fellow democrats from gun right states to support gun control. >> the message to democrats is, see what your silence does? there will be more of these. >> reporter: no surprise, wolf, saying that they don't like this proposed ban. feinstein is, once again, focused on curtailing the constitution instead of prosecuting criminals or fixing the mental health system. we are confident congress will deny the wrong-headed approach. >> it's not just republicans who are going to be opposed to what senator feinstein is proposing. a whole lot of democrats are going to be nervous about it as well. >> reporter: precisely. that's what senator feinstein was saying there in the piece, that her message to those fellow democrats, which they really are her first target, if you will, i
violence. on thursday, vice-president joe biden called for action before hundreds of u.s. mayors gathered in washington, d.c. foreign annual meeting. in his address, biden referenced the shooting rampage in newtown, connecticut that claimed the lives of 20 children, six school staff, and the shooter's mother. >> we have to do something. i hope we all agree there is a need to respond to the carnage on our streets and in our schools. i hope we all agree that mass shootings like the one we witnessed in newtown 34 days ago cannot continue to be tolerated. that tragedy in all my years of public life i think is -- has affected the public psyche in a way i have never seen before. >> a new poll affirms vice president joe biden's claim about the impact of new town, finding it affected the public opinion on guns or deeply than other shootings. a new poll says 54% of americans believe gun control laws should be tightened up from 39% last april. the increased support swept across party lines, with an 18- point rise among republicans. nine in 10 people said the three favored requiring background check
president joe biden who will meet with the connecticut governor promised mayors across the country yesterday that the administration is in it to win it for this fight. >> there's some who say the most powerful voice in this debate belongs to the gun lobbies and those who demand the stop to these common sense approaches to save lives. i think they're wrong. high capacity magazines don't have a practical sporting purpose or hunting purpose. as one hunter told me. if you've got 12 rounds, you've got 12 rounds, it means you've already missed the deer 11 times, you should pack the sucker in at that point. you don't deserve to have a gun period you're that bad. >> as the obama administration builds up for the legislative battle, a new poll shows 56% of americans favor stricter gun laws. and the same poll shows the national rifle association with a higher approval than hollywood. >> the nra's had some good days and bad days in this. and actually that depends on how you look at it. even when the nra has a bad day. and the media is calling them too aggressive. that's a good day for the nra, that usua
. obama presented his plan alongside vice-president joe biden, who headed the white house task force appointed after newtown. >> in the months since 20 precious children and six brave adults were violently taken from us in sandy hook elementary, more than 900 of our fellow americans have reportedly died at the end of a gun. 900. in the past month. and every day we wait, that number will keep growing. so i am putting forward a specific set of proposals based on the work of joe's task force. and in the days ahead, i intend to use whatever with this office holds to make them a reality. >> the white house plan is expected to meet stiff resistance from house republicans and even some senate democrats in states with loose restrictions on firearms. in a statement, the national rifle association vowed to challenge obama with what it called "p5 of the century." and his remarks, obama called on the american people to help him push gun control through congress. >> this will not happen unless the american people demand it. if parents and teachers, police officers and pastors, if hunters and spor

of. in 94 plants and put this band, and by their own admission, even joe biden said this will stop the situation. when the president or the governor of the state gets threatened, they don't pass laws, they bring in highly qualified arms people to protect them. and if we want to protect our children, let's take all the money away from protecting the politicians who, by the way, just to be a politician. gerri: come on. you have to protect the president. you can't remove the secret service. >> why? gerri: for goodness sakes, there are all kinds of people out there, crazy lens to want to get him. as just -- that silly. >> no, it's not. here's the thing, our kids did not choose to be in a violent situation. they keep getting placed in there. we need to protect our children. i just think -- gerri: i don't have any beef with you saying that we have to protect our kids. at think that's absolutely right. no doubt about that kind would not argue with your having guns. and just wondering if you think that what is going on in this country is an overreaction and the kind of reaction that means
